Hello, friends! I’ve been a bit remiss in acknowledging a couple of bloggy award nominations I’ve received over the past few weeks. I mention them, not because I want to toot my own horn, but because I’d like to draw your attention to the lovely bloggers who nominated me! If you’re not following these gals already, well, what are you waiting for? Get on that!
First up, Debbie over at Minnado’s House nominated me for a Sunshine Award. Thanks, Debbie! Her blog is very cool– she AND her kids are talented makers and they’re always up to something fun! Check her out! To go with the Sunshine Award, there are a few questions…
Favorite color: ALL! I love colors, especially bright ones, but if I MUST pick… I like apple green, robin’s egg blue, mustard, and gray.
Favorite animal: again, ALL! I’m a massive dog lover, but I’m also a big fan of any kind of humorous animal– ducks, otters, penguins, chipmunks, goats… I could keep going and going and going…
Favorite number: 5
Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Coca-Cola (I know, I’m a disgusting person)
Facebook or Twitter: Facebook
My passion: my faith, my beloved Man Friend, my terrible hound, filmmaking
Favorite Pattern: I’m a bit of a newbie, so I haven’t made that many patterns, but the Colette Ginger skirt comes to mind as it was the pattern that really got me hooked on sewing (thanks for Sunni for the sewalong!). I felt like a magician when I was sewing it– everything came together so perfectly!
Favorite day of the week: Saturday!
Favorite flower: peonies (I carried with a bouquet of peonies and sweet peas when I was married– they’re my favorites!)
Favorite celebrity role model: Hmm, tough question. I’d say women in comedy like Tina Fey, Kristen Wiig, and Amy Poehler who play roles that I can actually identify with sometimes (instead of just playing love interests, sidekicks, or eye candy). I’ve also always been a huge fan of Frances McDormand and I loved Linda Hamilton in Terminator 2… seriously, name a cooler movie character than Sarah Connor! Impossible.
OK, I’m supposed to name ten blogs to pass the award onto now… I know that many of these folks already have received the award, and maybe you already follow them, but here are some people whose blogs I love (in no particular order):
- Leah at Struggle Sews a Straight Seam
- Stephanie, now at Makes the Things
- Andrea at Four Square Walls
- Marie at A Sewing Odyssey
- Christine at Daughter Fish
- Gail at Today’s Agenda
- Sallie at Sallieoh
- Liz at A Good Wardrobe
- Maddie at Madalynne
- Forrest at Presser Foot Propaganda
I was also nominated for a Liebster Award by Lavender at Threadsquare and Amy at Sew Well. Thank you, ladies! They’re both gorgeous, amazing sewists whose FO’s fill me with a mixture of total amazement and blinding jealousy. Follow them and
hate them be amazed by them!
What have you guys been up to lately? I’ve finished a couple of things, but I haven’t had the daylight/free time combo to snap some pics yet. Hope to soon!
What else is new? Anybody trying any exciting new techniques? Or fancy new projects in the works? The Mad Men dress reveal was so hot all-a-y’all made me sweat! Great job, guys! And it’s been super fun watching you OWOP participants put together sassy outfits! In other bloggy news, Dibs finally has a mini-Dibs— congratulations!! It’s all so exciting around here these days!!
